Being accused of a sex crime is one of the most damaging things that can happen to anyone. If you are convicted, the possible consequences can be severe for you and your family: time in prison, commitment to a sex offender institution (even beyond the term for the crime), Megan's Law registration (which includes community-notification Internet posting), DNA registration and/or community supervision for life — not to mention a profound impact on your personal and professional reputation.
